Meet Dr. Gillian Mandich

I’m a scientist on a mission to help people live their happiest life. I’m a published researcher; the founder of The International Happiness Institute of Health Science Research; a two-time TEDx speaker; and I appear regularly in the media on shows such as The Social, Marilyn Denis, Breakfast Television, and The Morning Show.

Dr. Mandich was the lead speaker for an event that I hosted for Venture Sinai, a charity that raises funds for vital research at the Lunenfeld Tanenbaum Research Institute at Sinai Health System in Toronto, Ontario. The event took place over Zoom during the COVID pandemic in June of 2020. She was such a dynamic and engaging speaker and her talk was well researched and delivered in a way that was easily understood and useful. The feedback that we received from our members and donors was stellar. There were pearls of wisdom imparted that could be used in our everyday lives that I still follow. Dr. Mandich exudes such positive energy and is an absolute pleasure to listen and learn from. I highly recommend hiring her as a speaker for groups of any size. I will be having her speak again at another event that I am organizing.

Gillian is a natural speaker and expert in her field. Amazing energy in-front of the room and she commands attention while captivating the audience. The Females In Real Estate (F.I.R.E.) ladies loved her keynote speech so much that we had her back this year for second year. She is engaging, informative, and fun to listen to. I highly recommend Gillian as a speaker at your event.

ABA Canada has invited Dr. Gillian Mandich as a key-note speaker and as main stage host for its marquee trade show Revel in Beauty in March 2018. The audience fell in love with Gillian instantly, she made them laugh, made them cry and even took them through breathing exercises in between acts on the main stage. Her presence, poise, humour, grace, and charisma are totally energizing; so much that we invited her to host our Main Stage again in 2019 and was schedule to host in 2020 as well but the event was cancelled due to Covid-19. But Gillian jumped on the opportunity to help our members through the tough times and presented a motivating heartfelt video conference to hundreds of attendees. We highly recommend Dr. Mandich and can’t wait to have her with us again at a future event.

With an infectious enthusiasm, Dr. Mandich had all ears and eyes tuned in to her positive message and her ground-breaking research on happiness, resilience, and how to thrive during difficulty. She is a force of nature--and a true giver. Her heart is huge and her knowledge is deep. She kept our audience fully engaged!

Gillian has delivered talks to Western alumni and friends on a couple of occasions on the topic of happiness. We’ve had her speak both in person and virtually. We received many wonderful comments from alumni, and I know they truly appreciated Gillian’s warmth, positivity and wisdom. The content was timely and relevant.
